INTJs are most comfortable learning when:
♠ experiencing new problems or opportunities from which to learn ♠ able to stand back from events and listen/observe, e.g. observing a group at work, taking a back seat in a meeting, watching a video ♠ allowed to think before acting, to assimilate before commenting, allowed time to prepare or do background reading ♠ acquiring knowledge which is part of a system, model, concept, theory ♠ given the chance to question and probe the basic methodology, assumptions or logic behind something, e.g. by taking part in a question and answer session ♠ intellectually stretched, i.e. by analyzing a complex situation, being tested in a tutorial session, by being with high caliber people who ask searching questions ♠ finding themselves in structured situations with a clear purpose ♠ listening to or reading about ideas and concepts that emphasize rationality or logic and are well argued ♠ analyzing and then generalizing the reasons for success or failure ♠ offered interesting ideas and concepts even though they are not immediately relevant ♠ required to understand and participate in complex situations. ♠ concentrating on important issues by drawing up action plans INTJ’s are least comfortable when:
♠ asked to repeat essentially the same activity over and over again ♠ given precise instructions to follow with little room for maneuver ♠ asked to attend to detail and tie up loose ends ♠ involved in situations which require action without planning ♠ asked to do something without a context or apparent purpose and to participate in situations emphasizing emotions and feelings ♠ involved in unstructured activities where ambiguity and uncertainty are high, e.g. with open-ended problems ♠ faced with a lot of alternative techniques without any being explored in depth
